Chumack Image of Comet Hale-Bopp


Observer: John Chumack
Location: John Bryan State Park Observatory, Ohio
Date: February 25, 1997 10:37 UT

Here is a shot of Hale-Bopp sweeping through the Viel Nebula region for the Hale-Bopp Page. Taken on 2-25-97 @ 10:37 U.T. The Image was taken in the presence of very strong moonlight, using a Broadband LPR Filter helped to knock down the moonlight. This increased the contrast and help in recording both the Viel Nebula & the Gamma Cygni Nebula Region in this 20 minute exposure on Royal Gold 200 Film & a 100mm Lens @ F4.

Site; John Bryan State Park Observatory, MVAS 23 miles North East of Dayton, Ohio
